Seriously, though, I’ve been trying to learn to shuttle tat since the last century. Waaaaaay back in university, sometime around 1999 or so (gosh, that looks like ancient times now, doesn’t it?), I took a shuttle tatting class at my then-LNS Golden Threads. I did okay, but I never really caught on. I tried books, YouTube tutorials, and even a class at Craftsy, but I still never got it. Thankfully, there is needle tatting and Kim Beamish. (You may recall I took a class from her at this past fall’s CreativFestival.) I am clearly meant to needle tat, not shuttle tat.

So, what to do with my shuttle tatting supplies? Why not give them away!

If you are interested in learning shuttle tatting, this is actually a really great book. Working with it was the closest I ever got to actually understanding what to do. And that is saying a lot. I’ll also send you three shuttles, two of which have never been used. (The metal shuttle is the one I’ve been trying to use for lo these many years, but it is still in absolutely excellent shape since I didn’t practice too much…) I will also include a lovely little ball of very fine tatting thread. And, lastly, I will include a little surprise.

If you’d like to enter, please leave a comment below. I will close the comments on Friday, February 12th at about 9pm Eastern and draw a winner. The winner will be notified via email, so make sure you fill out your correct email address. (Don’t leave it in the body of the comment, just put it in the proper field in the comment form.)

If you’d like a second entry, just post about the giveaway on your blog, Twitter or Instagram. You can tag me on Twitter as @silverlotus and on Instagram as @stitchinglotus. Then, hop back over here and let me know you’ve posted.

Good luck! And I hope you have more success with shuttle tatting than I did. 😉

    You finished it? I don’t think I touched mine since the class. I am hoping to pick up my needle again but maybe not to tat that design. I just have to find the right one 😉

  2. Laura says:

    I’ve always wanted to learn to tat! (Like I need ANOTHER hobby) Would love to win these!

    Heather, I wish I knew you needed help with your tatting. Fringe Element tatters have a drop in once a month at the Longbranch Library and you could get all the help you need for free. I have been tatting for 40+ years and think you just need someone sitting close by. It’s very easy but does require some practice. I’m sad that you have given up hope 🙁 It’s a very relaxing, addicting and cost friendly craft. Oh, and I think the metal shuttle would have been the hardest one of the three to use.
    If interested you can peak at my tatting:

  4. Oh it looks so very pretty on top of the Christmas bauble. This is a craft I don’t really know much about…. But i know all about having good intentions to learn something now! I. Love to learn new things, I just find it so exciting,for years I have been trying to learn how to crotchet! I put it down and pick it up now and then…one day I will get it, I hope!! Maybe I am just not supposed to crotchet?! Haha many many other wonderful crafts out there to learn! Ha ha Tatting looks so delicate, very pretty too. I am always up for trying new things…I would love to be entered into your give away…thank you 🙂

  8. Rachel says:

    I still have my grandmother’s tatting shuttles, so I won’t enter the Giveaway.

    I’ll just offer some encouragement to the winner – there is a knack to shuttle tatting, but once you have it, it’s not hard to get it back again, even after a couple of years off…

  9. Clare says:
